Arizona Research Laboratories


Established in 1979, the University of Arizona’s Arizona Research Laboratories (ARL) supports and promotes interdisciplinary collaborations that initiate new research and educational programs of high priority to the scientific community. This cross-fertilization between disciplines has created new projects, collaborations, and educational opportunities. The very success of these programs and other programs in ARL is a direct result of providing opportunities for research active faculty, postdoctoral fellows, and students (undergraduate and graduate) to develop intellectual and scientific growth.

The ARL Research Core Services group provides investigators and students with state-of-the-art facilities necessary to carry out leading-edge biological, chemical, and engineering research. Core services specialize in providing high-end equipment that is difficult for individual investigators to afford, and advanced technical assistance in the application of this equipment and other modern analytical methods. Besides simply making leading-edge technology available to the university community, the shared facilities bring investigators together toward common goals, thus facilitating inter-departmental, cooperative, multidisciplinary research projects. Finally, the core services facilitate the creation and development of research and analytical activities of other state agencies and of industrial clients.
